Run time: 1 minute

This video interview with Bob Schieffer of CBS News was conducted in 2008 and part of it appeared in the Club's centennial film that year. Please listen to his remarks about the role of a free press in a democratic society. Of course this view contrasts with the idea recently offered by the President that the press is the enemy of the American people.
